Racism in my local paper
is it me or does this writer's shouts of racism towards black leaders come off as just ...well, just a bit racist himself?

http://www.timesdispatch.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename...


Editor, Times-Dispatch: When all else fails, hire Johnnie Cochran, bring in Al Sharpton, and blame Whitey. Poor Johnny Johnson can't make it in the local supermarket business, so he resorts to the all-too-familiar excuse: racism.

I don't know who I'm more disgusted with: the Mayor, City Manager, and other city officials who attended Sharpton's meeting - or the Times-Dispatch for printing such tripe. Tim Brandon. powhatan.

3. To be honest, I preferred when they were younger and had
more girls on the show, including Molly Ringwald.
